Busy fingers

Most of you may know i crochet and i like to do it. I'm pretty good at hats and have made many, mostly for Kason :) Well with a new one on the way, and it being a girl, i was excited to make tiny girly hats! :) Don't worry Kason will not be left out! :)

First off is Madison's blessing hat. If she fits it (we sure hope she does) she will be wearing the blessing dress my Mom and myself were blessed in. I wanted to make a hat to go with the outfit and i saw this pattern and knew it would be perfect. It has a timeless look to me that is classic and would be perfect.
Isn't it beautiful? I'm debating whether or not to make a small flower for it.. i might not because its for her blessing... but we will see.
I love the pattern, a shell pattern. One i have always admired and finally just did it, and it was WAY easy!
With my hand in it so you can kinda get an idea of what it would be like on a head :) It's made out of a cotton yarn, one of my favorites to work with. i LOVE the way it turned out, and best part. It took be 45 minutes for the entire hat! :) thats a winner for me!

Next up is a blue hat. Its the same pattern as the blessing hat, but its a tad smaller so i'm not sure if its going to fit... its no secret that Logan and I have big heads and we have lovingly passed that on the Kason.. I'm sure that little Maddie will have our head size as well. It's also made of cotton and has a bit of a stretch to it so it just may fit!
This one will have a white and light pink flower added to it with a button as its middle.. can't wait to add that!

just a close picture of the pattern.. i can't get enough of it :)
and again a picture with my hand in it. I did a border on the bottom of this one. I like the border but i'm glad that i left the blessing hat without a straight border, it looks more vintage that way to me :)

Another project i did was a hoodie. I was so excited to tackle this one that i did it before we knew we were having a girl. Good thing Maddie is a girl because this hoodie would not be boyish enough to put on a boy baby :)
It was an easy pattern from a book i got from the library. I may make the hood a bit larger. Madison will be born in Late July early August, BUT we are going camping for labor day.. she will be like 4 weeks!! So i'm stocking up on making warm hats and thick hoodies for her :) This is a bit big, about a 3 month size, but it will be just fine for her.
I LOVE the tye-dye yarn! it was perfect for this hoodie!!

And the last project for today is a blanket. I will admit i started this in late October but stopped just before Thanksgiving. Well i got sick right about that time and found out we were expecting!! So i lost all modivation while i had bad morning sickness... BUT FINALLY FINISHED IT! It was to be a blanket for myself, but once i got pregnant i decided that if we were having a girl i would end it at a baby size blanket and have it for her. Well a few days after finding out that Maddie was indeed a girl i finished it up, and its perfect! i love it so so much!!
It's laying over a cushion, its about 36in x36in give or take a bit. i love that its not classic soft baby colors, but bold and bright. a nice mix up in all the soft blankets she has or will get.
it's made up granny hexagons and its perfect!! i love this blanket. i now want to make a larger one for Kason's toddler bed, of course in boy colors :) we will see when that happens!

well thats alot for now. I have a few more things up my sleeve that will get done hopefully before we move (thats another post) have a good day!
